Effective detection and management of hypertension through community pharmacy in EnglandSubscription
Management of hypertension does not routinely occur in English pharmacies, despite community pharmacy being an ideal place for screening to take place. By examining and learning from the evidence, pharmacies in England can help patients maintain ideal blood pressure levels and improve health outcomes.
New research into blood pressure measurements taken in different settings could help pharmacists interpret blood pressure readings better and help them offer appropriate advice to patients.
